As with prior events, this is a technical conference with about half of the content provided by Microsoft speakers and half by peer speakers. We focus a lot of attention on content and presenters and strive to bring together excellent content from both Microsoft and peers. A large part of the motivation for holding the event on the Microsoft campus is greater access to high level Microsoft presenters.
Some of the material that will be presented at the conference by Microsoft speakers will be protected by a non-disclosure agreement. You will be asked to complete an NDA form before the conference begins on Monday.
